Men’s Tennis Continues Fall With ITA All-American Championships

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Three Baylor men's tennis players, Jimmy Bendeck, Constantin Frantzen and Max Tchoutakian, will compete in the 2016 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American Championships, held in Tulsa, Okla., from Oct. 1-10.

The tournament will be hosted by University of Tulsa at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center for the 12th-straight season. The 2016 event will be held in three different stages. The prequalifying draws will take place on Oct. 1-2, the qualifying draws on Oct. 3-4, and the main draw will be held on Oct. 6-10.

Senior Max Tchoutakian will represent the Bears in the main draw singles portion of the event, while freshman Constantin Frantzen competes in the qualifying singles draw. Sophomore Jimmy Bendeck will compete in the prequalifying singles round. Tchoutakian and Frantzen will also be teaming up in qualifying doubles play. All three Baylor men’s tennis players come into this tournament with recent success.

Bendeck is coming off of a successful run at the Napa Valley Tennis Classic in St. Helena, Calif., where he was the lone competitor undefeated after singles play. Bendeck went on to defeat Tulsa’s Dominic Bechard, 10-8, for the 2016 USTA Wildcard Shootout title.

Tchoutakian went 1-1 at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships in Athens, Ga., last weekend. The senior, ranked No. 54 in the country, took down Kennesaw State’s Simon Prichard, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5, before losing in Saturday’s play to Florida’s McClain Kessler in the round of 32.

As for the freshman, Frantzen went 2-0 in singles competition at the Napa Valley Tennis Classic on Sept. 16-18. Frantzen defeated Tulsa’s Dominic Bechard and North Carolina’s Blaine Boyden.
